As a result of progressive economic development efforts, Box Elder County enjoys a diverse economic base and employment profile. The County is currently involved in several business retention and expansion, value-added marketing and business recruitment activities. The County will continue these efforts in a manner that is sensitive to the natural environment and compatible with the area's rural character. The County will also pursue economic development activities that compliment existing businesses and industries.
County economic development efforts are pursued through the Box Elder Economic Development Office (BECED). This office operates under the direction of the County Commissioner and the Box Elder County Economic Development Board. Each year, BECED and the Board conduct a strategic planning exercise designed to review the past year's performance and identify specific goals, objectives and implementation strategies for the upcoming year.
